Brandon Staley won’t be the Eagles’ next head coach

Brandon Staley won’t be the Eagles’ next head coach

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Staying in LA instead! The next Philadelphia Eagles head coach will NOT be Brandon Staley. The Birds were reportedly set to interview the Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator on Monday evening but that won’t be happening now. The Los Angeles Chargers are reportedly hiring Staley instead. This is an unexpected development! Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll had previously been linked to the LAC job. The Eagles are reportedly interested in Daboll and he’s a logical candidate for the opening. Daboll’s work with Josh Allen...

The 2021 AFC and NFC Championship games are set

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports One more round to go before Super Bowl LV. And then there were four. Now that the divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs is over, the schedule is officially set for championship weekend. AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME BUFFALO BILLS at KANSAS CITY CHIEFS The Bills are back in the AFCCG for the first time since January 1994 after beating the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night. Not unlike the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles, they seem to have great chemistry and give off really good vibes. Buffalo’s been a well-coached team under former Eagles...

NFL Divisional Playoffs: Buccaneers vs. Saints

Photo by Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire via Watch the Sunday night game here! The final game of the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs will feature two of the greatest — and oldest — quarterbacks still in the game, when Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12-5) take on Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints (13-4) on Sunday evening. These teams have never met in the postseason before, but they did recently face off in early-November when the Saints handedly won on the road, 38-3. They also played each other to open the 2020 season, when New Orleans got a home win...

BGN Memories: Eagles vs. Vikings 1980 Divisional Playoffs

BGN Memories: Eagles vs. Vikings 1980 Divisional Playoffs

40 years ago, the Eagles and Vikings played an insane playoff game that no one remembers. All season, we’ve been looking back 40 years at the 1980 Philadelphia Eagles team that beat the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship Game and went on to the team’s first ever Super Bowl appearance. The Eagles finished 12-4 as the No. 2 seed in the conference and hosted the 9-7 Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round of the playoffs on a frigid Saturday afternoon at Veterans Stadium. The Birds had beaten Bud Grant’s Vikings 42-7 in the regular season, but that was all the way...

The Linc - Doug Pederson has “been contacted by several teams”

Photo by Andy Lewis/Icon Sportswire via Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 1/17/21. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Doug Pederson very unlikely to take a coordinator role despite interest, expected to sit out 2021 - CBS SportsPederson was let go from the Eagles a week after the season ended, with most teams already fairly deep in their head coach searches, and it’s quite possible that — pending the results of this weekend’s playoff games — the Eagles’ vacancy is the only one remaining by Tuesday. Most other teams are fairly locked in on...

The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs continues Saturday night with an AFC matchup between the Baltimore Ravens (12-5) and Buffalo Bills (14-3), who will meet for the first time ever in the postseason. The Ravens lead the all-time series between these team, 6-3, and have won 4 of the past 5 meetings, as well.

Eagles lose Prince Tega Wanogho to the Chiefs

Eagles lose Prince Tega Wanogho to the Chiefs

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ Welp. When the Philadelphia Eagles announced their initial round of futures contract signings after the 2020 season, we noted how rookie offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho’s name was conspicuously absence. As it turns out, the Eagles’ 2020 sixth-round pick is officially signing to the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad. While it’s hard to say this qualifies as a certain major loss, it’s still a disappointing development for the Birds. PTW was considered a “steal” where the Eagles drafted him. He boasts intriguing developmental...

Report: Eagles request interview with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy

Current Kansas City OC to replace former Kansas City OC as Philadelphia’s HC? The Philadelphia Eagles requested a head coach interview with Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, according to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo. It’s unclear when Bieniemy will be available to interview since the Chiefs are currently still alive in the 2021 NFL playoffs. It sure would be something if the Eagles fired former Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson just to replace him with his eventual successor in Philly. It sounds like that’s not likely to...

Report: Eagles will interview Josh McDaniels on Sunday evening

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Unexpected. The Philadelphia Eagles will interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for their head coaching vacancy on Sunday evening, according to a joint-report from The Athletic’s Bo Wulf and Zac Jackson. This development certainly comes as a surprise. Despite being a popular candidate in the past, McDaniels wasn’t getting any buzz in this year’s cycle. The Patriots assistant can hardly be considered a fan favorite to replace Doug Pederson. McDaniels screwed the Eagles over when he backed out of the...

NFL insider says the Eagles are telling head coach candidates they want Carson Wentz back in 2021

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Genuine sentiment? Trade leverage? When the Philadelphia Eagles hire their new head coach, it’ll be interesting to see what their plan is at the quarterback position. According to NFL insider Mike Garafolo, the team is letting candidates know about their preference. “I’ve spoken to a lot of folks in and around this situation. And there’s a lot of factors at playing here and it’s obviously going to depend who the next head coach is. And right now, this was the point at which they were supposed to be having conversations with Carson...

Report: Doug Pederson drawing interest for Seahawks offensive coordinator job

Photo by Otto Greule Jr / Former Eagles head coach could end up in Seattle. Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson (sigh) recently spoke with the Seattle Seahawks about their offensive coordinator opening, according to a report from NFL insider Tom Pelissero. Pelissero also says that Pederson “may also still end up drawing interest for another head-coaching job.” That outcome isn’t looking super likely, however, with basically only the Houston Texans job available to him. And so if Pederson isn’t willing to take a year off from coaching, which is...

New Carson Wentz report details the Eagles’ quarterback being uncoachable and insubordinate

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Yikes. With the Philadelphia Eagles firing Doug Pederson, the organization seems to be hoping that a new head coach can “fix” Carson Wentz. But the reality is that Carson Wentz needs to play a big part in fixing Carson Wentz. It’s naive to believe a new head coach will make all the difference if the 28-year-old quarterback doesn’t prove more amenable to coaching. I know I’ve already beaten the “Wentz isn’t coachable and that’s a big concern” drum to death. I’ve highlighted my my conversation with Joe Santoliquito on BGN...
